Celebrate Women in Medicine Month on Wednesday, Sept. 29, noon Central, with a special negotiation workshop presented on YouTube by the 2020 recipient of the Joan F. Giambalvo Fund for the Advancement of Women, Anees B. Chagpar, MD, MSc, MPH, MA, MBA, FACS, professor Yale University, principal investigator.
There are discrepancies in pay, position and perks between men and women in all fields, including in medicine and surgery. This is mediated, in part, by a discomfort in negotiation by women, which can potentially be mitigated by negotiation training.
Dr. Chagpar will discuss her research focused on the creation and assessment of a virtual negotiation workshop for women physicians as well as provide tips and advice to guide the negotiation process. She will be available to answer questions in the YouTube chat during the event.
